There is an H125 sim, but I'd have to check with the operator before I could pass their details on to you. You could always call Geosim, they may be able to point you in the right direction. PHS in Melbourne have a 355 sim as do a couple of others.

That looks like an interesting setup Mike, good luck with it.

Careflight have 2 H125 sims. They have been known to rent them out. They are predominately for IFR currency.

Ive got a decent setup from Lockheed Martin but its probably not what your after. Mines a home sim setup, If thats what your after I can point you in the right direction however its tailored for high end fixed wings with FMS and accurate systems etc...good fun on a Friday or Saturday night 8)

Yes i know, hence the included link so others would as well. It has been around since 2010.

X-plane 11 ( http://www.x-plane.com ) is another excellent choice and runs on Windows, macOS, & Linux.

I think you will find that LifeFlight have two Elite TH-100 synthetic flight training devices (FTD) in Toowoomba and Bundaberg (I think) but I know of the TWB one for sure.

Also, the AW139 level D sim at YBBN.

Be prepared to have a fairly decent computer for XP11. I have an HTC Vive VR headset, and XP11.20vr - which provides native VR support now - and a pro flight trainer puma set of controls.
I have to say, flying is fairly difficult in the sim due to the poor graphics and performance.

Am keen to test Prepar3d - might try and find a demo and will report in.
If you're even in Albury feel free to drop me a line to check out the sim...

I’ve had P3D now upto V4 for 18 months (Microsoft FLight Sim for about 20 yrs before that) with most of the Orbx scenery add ons and Active sky weather and P3d is brilliant. As mentioned you will need a high end computer though.

Depends on what you want to do really but I’m guessing procedural flying and practice approaches. It integrates very well with AIP and Jeppeson charts as far as accuracy. If your planning on buying some accurate add ons with FMS like PMDG and Majestic software it would be handy to down load the Navigraph database add on to keep your cycles current I update cycles a few times a year.

There are some really good turbo props and piston engines planes from Carenado developers as well and are very realistic.

Any questions I’m happy to help.
